Satisfactory Experience

Overall, we had a good experience at this hotel. Very clean room and comfortable bed. Good location to easy "L" train access. Only 2 blocks away from Willis Tower. $12 cab ride to Navy Pier and Magnificent Mile. The only thing is it can be slightly loud on certain floors because of the L train if you're not used to it. If possible, ask for a room that faces the front #street# view of the buliding, away from the train.

Last Minute Anniversay trip

This hotel was nice. The room was pretty with modern decor, and very spacious. The windows panoramic view added to the open feel. The down side is you can hear all the noises from the street, which made for a restless night sleep. While the room was clean, their new decor was already a bit beat up. The curtains were snagged and the lamps were scuffed and tattered looking. The location was a little more on the outskirts than I'm used to, the trollies don't travel to this part of town, but the stops are relatively close. But it's about a 15 minute walk to the Art Institute of Chicago and about 30-35 minute walk to the start of the magnificent mile. Overall it was a good stay, on par with the chain. Bring your own toiletries, they only provide 2 small bars of soap and a single use shampoo, no lotion or conditioner. And plan on eating breakfast out. They do provide breakfast at no cost, but is it utter chaos in the breakfast area, you cannot serve yourself with the hot food, and the eggs were inedible.

Fantastic Weeekend in the City

The hotel is centerally located close to the Ogillvee Train station. The hotel was very nice and convient. The only down side was the breakfast, which was probably my least favorite continential breakfast from a hotel.

Lacking Sufficient Value

We stayed here for the Chicago marathon weekend. The special event explains the high cost, but the room was odd and lacked sufficient comfort for the price. The space was very tight: chest drawers would slide open on their own (possible the floor or furniture was uneven) and block walking space, plus drawers were 1/2 size of normal drawers in orders to fit in the room; closet was tiny; there was a large desk but hardly any room to turn around-- go figure. Bathroom was spacious though. Breakfast was mediocre and staff either too friendly and talkative or dismissive. We won't repeat this one, although we liked the convenience of the location.

Modern, clean, central

Excellent value. Very clean and modern. Good breakfast. Central location to financial district, but a little walk to park, museum, and river locations. Pleasant, helpful staff. Not fancy, but also not priced as a fancy hotel. Our room was as big, comfortable and clean as our friends who were paying twice as much, and it was newer.
